Flexicon Corp., Bethlehem, Pa., opened a new office in Barcelona designed to provide factory-direct engineering services and technical sales support to customers throughout Spain.

“The Barcelona location, coupled with our new Spanish language website, will fuel Flexicon's rapid growth in the region by providing a dedicated Spanish-language staff with full access to corporate resources,” says Keith Bourton, managing director.

The Barcelona office will be headed by Víctor Zamora Gómez, regional sales manager. He previously served as project manager for a bulk solids consultancy, where he managed mechanical and electrical aspects of small-to-large bulk handling projects. At Flexicon, he will be responsible for building relationships with plant managers, engineers and other decision-makers in facilities that handle bulk solid materials across the food, pharmaceutical, mineral and general chemical industries.

"The Barcelona office will have full access to Flexicon's engineering resources, including details on more than 20,000 installations of Flexicon bulk handling equipment worldwide," adds Bourton.
